'Contraband' -- 2 1/2 stars

R; 1:50 running time Playing a reformed cargo smuggler sucked back into the game, Mark Wahlberg is the star of "Contraband," a fairly entertaining remake of the 2008 Icelandic thriller "Reykjavik-Rotterdam." And a reliable star he is. Audiences develop relationships with actors over time, through good scripts and bad; this one's neither good nor bad, exactly. But Wahlberg has the presence, the glower and the laconic line readings to guide us through a mess of pain, painlessly. -- Michael PhillipsRead the full "Contraband" movie review
